LightningChart SDK v.8.4 New Features

LightningChart version 8.4.1. focuses on unifying behavior across the views, zooming improvements and 3D orientation and rotation changes. It also introduces new converters for different coordinate spaces, increases performance on many occasions, and makes requesting support much easier, using new tools that gather the information from the system for the user.

  • Automatic, one-time tool for doing ZoomToFit operation on a view introduced.
  • 3D camera supports new camera orientation and rotation style that allows new view direction and better rotation.
  • Legend box auto-positioning on 3D- 3D Pie- Smith- and Polar-views.
  • New Spherical and Cylindrical coordinates examples added for all of the platforms.

Map features

  • On-line tile maps: supports street maps and satellite imagery
  • Dozens of maps: World, continents, specific areas
  • Multi-layer: land, lakes, rivers, roads, cities etc
  • Map import from ESRI shape file data

Smith charts

  • Sectors
  • Markers

Signal Tools Features

  • SignalReader: SignalReader generates real-time data stream reading signal files in different formats: WAV (PCM), sid (biosignal file), ssd (LightningChart Ultimate Demo application sample data format). The playback can be automatically restarted with looping option.
  • AudioInput: Reads real-time sampled data stream from sound card line-in (using e.g. microphone) through DirectSound. The data can be forwarded to chart, AudioOutput or your own data target.
  • SignalGenerator: SignalGenerator is a multi-functional signal generator component. It allows combining different waveform types into single, real-time output signal. The waveform components can be set with a built-in user interface or by code.
  • SpectrumCalculator: Converts data between time domain and frequency domain using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm in Digital Signal Processing (DSP).
  • AudioOutput: Allows real-time data stream playback via sound card line-out (using e.g. speakers) through DirectSound. The data can be fetched from SignalGenerator, SignalReader, AudioInput or other data source.
